Meet the fascinating women of American Folklore and Legend in this award-winning collection!

Have you heard of the Star Maiden, Old Sally Cato, or Sweet Betsey from Pike?

Everyone knows about Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, and Davy Crockett, But have you heard of these larger-than-life women? From Bess Call, who wrestles any and all challengers, to Molly Cottontail, who can outwit any critter iin the woods, to Hekeke, who slays a giant singlehandedly, here are fifteen funny, stormy, and always entertaining tall tales of legendary American women. They’re as difference as can be, but still cut from the same cloth.

“An impressive and gratifying collection that’s a cut above other such compilations.”–School Library Journal
